The MP3 file type is still the most ubiquitous audio file type available, allowing it to play within many types of devices and players.
There are numerous options for recording lecture audio. These are the two currently supported by the DEE:
Upload Audio to the Web
Once you have an MP3 file you can post them to your Web site for download. If you are a Blackboard CE8 user, we recommend that you ZIP up the files first (see help for zipping up files). These downloadable files will work with devices such as iPods, iPhones, and other MP3 players.
Enable Playback on the Web
To play your MP3 files directly on a Website you'll need a player script. We generally use the Premium Beat's Flash Music Player

Distance and Extended Education (DEE) is unable to assist with the online delivery of copyrighted audio and video media. We do not have the legal expertise nor the staff available to review files and screen for issues. Fair Use and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act are both complicated pieces of legislation, and by most accounts subjective. We encourage individuals to secure written permission whenever possible and to weigh these Fair Use factors:
- The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
- The nature of the copyrighted work
- The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
- The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
U.S. Copyright office states "The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission."
DEE asks that individuals use one of many online hosted services such as YouTube, Vimeo and TeacherTube to deliver video clips, adhering carefully to the hosted site’s policies.
